Last November I went to Plus London. I was so excited to go, especially as I had to miss Plus North due to a little trip to hospital!
Whilst wandering around the event I spotted the Curvy Kate stand. I had only really heard about the brand through various tweets and blog posts. I spoke to the lovely Himare and arranged to get myself measured, something I hadn't had done in a few years. After having my make up done by the lovely Lily Von Pink I went back for my bra fitting. It was pretty cool having it done underneath the railway arches!
Himare was excellent and on the 3rd attempt she got my size, literally just by looking! When she told me my size I nearly fell over in shock, I mean 2 minutes before I was a 40E and then I suddenly became a 38GG! eeek! I have been in a 40e for the past 3-4 years..... oh my poor boobs!
After my fitting I filled out a form to be in with a chance to win £100 worth of Curvy Kate Lingerie, purchased a new dress and then met up with Mr C to start the tedious journey of getting home.
In December I checked my inbox one day whilst at work and to my surprise I received an email from Himare saying that I had won the £100 lingerie competition!
After 2 days of oooohing and aaaahing over the gorgeous sets available, I ended up choosing these three sets:
This one is the Daily Boost in Mocha. Finally, a nude bra suitable for my skin tone. Now I can wear a white shirt without having to worry about wearing a vest top underneath, hurrah!
Next is the Lola Black/Almond. I just fell in love with the print on this one.
Last but not least is the Smoothie Black.
I wasn't feeling brave enough to model them on here (my confidence is getting better but is not that high - yet) but I can say that they are very comfortable, no riding up at the back or straps digging in the shoulders....bliss! Thank you Curvy Kate!
These pieces are from the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection which I don't think is available anymore but do have a look at their website at the new SS 14 collection. I know that I will be buying a few additional pieces once payday comes around!
